Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren slammed Vanity Fair Friday morning for apologizing over a video that mocked Hillary Clinton, telling the publication to “get a backbone.”
Lahren’s comments come after the magazine’s official Twitter account shared a video on Tuesday that showed Vanity Fair writers offering new hobbies for Clinton to take up in 2018.
In case you missed it, Vanity Fair’s The Hive tweeted a snarky video of six New Year’s resolutions for Hillary Clinton. Basically, the suggestions amounted to telling her to move on and find something else to do other than remain in politics.
The video, which Vanity Fair said was meant to be humorous, became the subject of backlash online, primarily from liberals on social media.
The Hannity show discussed the Vanity Fair video, with conservative pundits: Dan Bongino and Tomi Lahren. Lahren, tore into the magazine for the apology in an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Friday.
“They had humor. They were making fun at Hillary Clinton. Of course, any time you poke fun at Hillary Clinton, the leftist machine is going to come after you,” Lahren told co-hosts Leland Vittert and Rachel Campos-Duffy.
“But why are we apologizing to Hillary Clinton for anything?” the former “Blaze TV” host continued. “I will apologize to Hillary Clinton when she apologizes for compromising national security and classified information, lying about Benghazi, taking money from countries who torture women and gays, rigging the primary against Bernie Sanders, and just making women overall look bad.
“That’s when I will apologize to Hillary Clinton. Until then, my goodness, Vanity Fair, get a backbone.”
